I Blade Chances Good for Taming Wildcats Here Tonight L B. MEETS TAFT ON GRIFFITH FIELD By MARION FERGUSON Tonight the East Bakersfield Blades will Invade Griffith Field to clash with the one-time defeated Wildcats from Taft at 8:30 p. m. im mediately following the tilt between the lightweight squads from these same schools which has the kick-off time set at 6:30. "The Blades who proved them selves to be a top-notch ball club when they ran up a shut-out score against the Whites from Bakersfield High School last week shouldn't have too much trouble with the Taft eleven who bowed gracefully to the Blues last Friday night on their home jjridiron. Taft's main worry will be how to get through the experienced line of the easterners who will have such boys as Eavy Pappas, Bud Long, Gordofi Foster and Joe Kroeker facing them. On the other hand, the Wildcats proved themselves to be a last half team against the Blues who did all of their scoring In the first quarter and if they start out on the right foot tonight they will be a push-over for the Blades. East Bakersfield coach, Robert Jellison, said today that he believes the Wildcats have been underrated because of their loss last week and that the Blades are ready for any type of a surprise that might offer them a defeat.

(UP.)—Gold Bolt, two-year-old son of Time Supply, won the $5000 California homebred stakes at Bay Meadows yesterday, finishing two lengths ahead oC the favored War Allies, with Realization third. Gold Bplt is owned by Allen Drumheller of Washington state, and is stabled with Georgie Drum and Sirde. Seventeen horses have been nominated for tomorrow's $10,000 San Francisco county handicap, headed by Okana at high weight of 124 pounds, and Sirde and Jade Boy at 122. NEW ENVOY—Richard C. Patterson, Jr., of New York, has been named ambassador to the exiled government of Yugoslavia at London. He was United States minister to Yugoslavia before the war. Allen Asks College Sports Commissioner LAWREXCE, Kans., Oct. 1.1. (UP) Dr. Forest C. (Phog) Allen, basketball mentor at the University of Kansas and self-styled sage of middle-western coaches, suggested today that colleges employ a national high commissioner to rule in the manner of Judge Kenesaw M. Landis in baseball to "save the decency of collegiate athletics after the war." Allen, critic of proselyting in college athletics, said that unless such an office was created there would be a postwar scandal in football and basketball that would overshadow any similar incident since baseball's "Black Sox" World Series deal of 1919. Allen, whose cage teams are practically the perennial champions of the Big Six, predicted a postwar golden age of sports. "It will have to be golden," he said. "There won't be enough silver to hire the big boys." Allen suggested that "college administrators should see to it that the office of the president of the United States should nominate the commissioner. "Something is going to happen," he said. "If educational institutions e efficient, they will set up some machinery that will protect them from a national scandal. As sure as you live, the thing is going to crack ivide open sometime when they lay bare an incident where some group of college boys have thrown a game lor a tidy sum. That will happen jecause there is more money being bet on football and basketball games n America today, than is bet on all the horse races being run." LENINGRAD LIGHTS ON MOSCOW, Oct. 13.
